Thomas Szych, an area resident at the focus of attention for run-ins with neighbors and local gang members, returned to his home Saturday evening to find six windows broken and his property in disarray from intruders.
”They were actually in my house; they didn’t just break the windows. They were in and destroyed the place,” he said.
He said he is considering legal action to compensate for the damage to his home resulting from the riot.
”I think we’re going to conjoin into a class-action suit with some others that are in the neighborhood, with some of the business owners,” Szych said. ”And I think that’s what made the Mayor turn his mind to helping these businesses rebuild.”
While he was in Michigan taking concealed-carry courses to renew his permit, Szych’s home was targeted.
The damage to Szych’s house will exceed $3,000, he estimated.
City officials said they are reviewing whether Toledo will provide compensation for damages.
